    A size 100 is usually a extra long size 50, atleast with the brands I work with. is this correct kyokushin1?

    They are not wide at all, just normal.

    Looks like it's some kind of Australian sizing? Anyway 100 is a size on that oxford shop site. Never heard of this kind of sizing, sorry for sounding incredulous. It must be chest size in centimeters, so this would correspond roughly to a 39/40. Anyway given that you're not too big of a guy these lapels would probably be a good size for you.

    I think he's reading the cloth count.... as in super 100's.


    Just wear a skinny tie with the suit and take a pic. We'll tell you if it's reasonable.

    nah, the wool is in fact super 100s merino, its just that the place where I bought the suit has a different sizing scheme that doesnt conform with the international standard it seems.

    Will take a pic later today when I pick up my pants (getting length altered)

    Apart from the dimpling in the shoulders/upper arms, that suit is nice. (I'm surprised someone so new is posting such a well-fit suit!)

    Saw a guy in his 40's trying to rock that look at an expensive wedding last Sunday. If that's not a sure fire sign that the fad has been beating into the ground ...

    You know that the suit picture is from their online store, right?

    Not too wide. It's classic and in fact I have a couple of Burberry sportscoats of the same cut. I wouldn't wear a very narrow tie with it. The prices of that shop seem low enough but I believe these are suit separates. The sizes they use are cm. so you'd be a 40 in UK or US which is about normal for your height and weight.

    Yeah, like saying rock that or pull the trigger. And of course we all know that the 20yo busboy at the expensive wedding always knows more than a mature man of the world [​IMG]

    FTFY.

    As said, there is no reason to wear skinny ties when there is no problem in obtaining ties with a regular width.
